Congratulations to the graduates of the latest Certified Occupational Safety Specialist (COSS) class, held November 5 – 9 in Bismarck. They completed 40 hours of training in this unique program that focuses on both general industry and construction knowledge for the beginning safety practitioner as well as the experienced safety professional. The overall goal of the program is to equip employees who have safety and health responsibilities with the core competencies they must master to be successful in occupational safety and health. This course is unlike any other safety designation – the curriculum-based format involves in-class, instructor-led, hands-on training. To learn more about the program, visit our Training page.
